Presented by Jim Howell of the Savory Institute

Walla Walla, Wa.
This event has passed. Thank you for your interest. Please check back regularly for more Savory Institute workshops and presentations.
For generations, land managers around the world have been able to maintain and increase their stocking rates while drastically cutting expenses and improving the quality of their lives.
This has occurred in both high and low rainfall climates, on lands with varying levels of productivity, with large and small livestock herds, across varying cultures. How can such positive results be achieved in such different circumstances?
Continued education, planning, practice, and review of the results of Holistic Management on your farm or ranch will help you improve water quality, allow vegetation recovery, recharge groundwater, reduce chemical inputs, minimize erosion, improve animal health, resolve conflict, and increase profits.
Join us for a two-day conference and workshop presented by Jim Howell to discuss how Holistic Management allows producers to graze in nature’s image and many other topics that affect your land, land management, your triple bottom line, and productivity within your life using Holistic Management. Topics include:
* Holistic Financial Planning
* Holistic Planned Grazing
* Resilience Monitoring
* Grazing and Climate Change
* How Holistic Context fits into Grazing Management
* Small Acreage Grazing Management
* Grazing Resources
* Savory Hubstm
* Working with Government Agencies
